Bush's Terror War and the Fixing of Intelligence.

[Essay] By Prof. Peter Dale Scott

Global Research, March 16, 2012
The Asia-Pacific Journal. Vol. 10 Issue 12. No. 3

Terror War was formerly declared by George W. Bush on the evening of September 11, 2001, with his statement to the American nation that
"we will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts,
and those who harbor them."
But the notion that Bush's Terror War was in pursuit of actual terrorists lost credibility in 2003, when it was applied to Saddam Hussein's Iraq, a country known to have been targeted by terrorists but not to have harbored them.
It lost still more credibility with the 2005 publication in Britain of the so-called Downing Street memo, in which the head of the British intelligence service,
MI6 reported after a visit to Washington in 2002 that "Bush wanted to remove Saddam Hussein, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD.
But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."
False stories followed in due course linking Iraq to WMD, anthrax, and Niger yellow-cake (uranium)

This essay will demonstrate that before 9/11, a small element inside the CIA's Bin Laden Unit and related agencies, the so-called Alec Station Group were also busy. "fixing" intelligence by suppressing it in a way which, accidentally or deliberately enabled the Terror War.
They did so by withholding evidence from the FBI before 9/11 about two of the eventual alleged hijackers on 9/11, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, thus ensuring that the FBI could not surveil the two men or their colleagues.

Federal Wildlife Agents Shoot 14 Wolves from Helicopters

Feb. 23, 2012

Lewiston, Idaho (AP) -- Federal wildlife agents shot 14 wolves from helicopters in northern Idaho as part of an effort to help increase the elk population in the Lolo zone.
The three-day operation earlier this month cost $22,500 and was carried out by the USDA Wildlife Services and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

Through Wednesday, hunters and trappers had taken 22 wolves from the Lolo zone, while another six were shot from helicopters last spring, bringing the total known wolf kills to 42.

In recent years, wolves have been identified as the primary cause of death in female elk and calves over six months old.

Before the start of the hunting season, the Lolo zone wolf population was estimated at 75 to 100, with additional animals crossing back and forth between Idaho and Montana.


(At more than $1670 per wolf killed, wouldn't it have been cheaper to have
humanely trapped the 14 wolves and relocated them to areas where deer populations are too high?)
